Frequently Asked Questions
How close is Base Camp to the Sand Dunes National Park?
We are about a 20 minute drive from the National Park. You can see the Sand Dunes from Base Camp. We are the second closest campground to the Dunes.
How far is Base Camp from the closest gas, groceries, restaurants, etc.?
Base Camp is just 7 miles from Alamosa, which has over 60 restaurants, gas, Walmart, Safeway, etc.
Do you have shade and grass?
Base Camp is a new park. We have planted trees at each RV site, but they are not mature. There are no trees in the tent area yet. There are lots of desert shrubs to separate the sites, but they are not tall enough for shade. Many campers bring pop-up awnings. There is no grass in the campground. We've tried to keep it as natural as possible with the native high-desert shrubs and sand.
How late in the evening can we arrive?
You can arrive as late in the evening as you wish. We'll send you an email the day before your arrival, with your site number, wifi password, etc.
